    My kids both went to private Montessori for pre-K through K and then joined Salem starting with the first grade. Their transition to public school went very well they are bringing home excellent report cards and they enjoy the public school environment. I think this is a testament to the teachers and principal of the school.

    I attended this school many years ago. However I am still very involved with several individuals who reside within the township. This school is located on a cul de sac. Beyond the traffic and congestion of typical NJ street. The school and its staff are a dedicated faculty supported by a very involved PTA group. The only drawback that I would have with this school is that NJ they have not embraced the curriculum of teaching children within an inclusive setting. Meaning children with developmental delays aven wre seggregated into seperate classroom settings and given limited social interaction with the general school population.
